Fantastic stay at this hotel. It is situated right at Union Square where the trams pass up and down the entrance of the hotel which is great. Macys shopping centre is just across the street plus its a short walk from the station. Plenty of shops nearby also. The staff were very friendly and could not expect any more from...

A completely impersonal experience, compounded by worn out rooms and a ridiculous level of personal intrusion by security as a result of a JP Morgan event being held on premises. I was asked for my room card four times before I could exit the building, and another three times when re-entering. I don't mind that the event makes the hotel...

Great for business - ideal location that allowed our team to access great restaurants and sights in between conference days. Ask to stay in the newer parts of the hotel and be mindful of very loud elevators. Also, try the room service dim sum if you're peckish and want to splurge on a small treat.

For and old hotel, is very confortable. My room (917) was huge! The food was ok with room for improvement, the lobby bar (Clock Bar), was a bit pricey. Pet friendly! Excelent location, a lot of history inside the hotel.

This is a nice hotel with great location close to all the shopping in SF. But the hotel is a bit Identity loose and impersonal. The staff is friendly, but they also often loose attention and if you are unlucky the check on or check out can take very long time.

I have stayed here in the past and didn't have any problems. However, this time, I used points for a one night stay for 2 rooms.
